During Victoria's long lockdown in 2020, we held a variety of webinars and the recordings of these are still available: Litter Cleanups; Frogs of Darebin; Merri Fungi (with Friends of Merri Creek); Frogs of Whittlesea; At home in Whittlesea’s grasslands; Merri Birds (with Friends of Merri Creek.) Living together: Powerful Owls in Yarra’s neighbourhood, Stepping out: Leadership beyond the kindergarten setting, a Virtual tour of Marran Baba grasslands and a Spring Tour of Ngarri Djarrang Grassland.

Then in from July 2021 we recorded: 45 years of restoring Merri Creek, with local environmental legends, Ann and Bruce McGregor; followed by What is 'Plirding'- and how to do it! and Wild Chat: Rewilding & Living Bequests in Darebin, both in early September 2021.

Wurundjeri panel - featureSee a web version of these fabulous panels which celebrate the outstanding community achievement since 1975 in transforming Merri Creek from a weed-smothered drain to a much-loved waterway running through a bushland corridor: fronts of panels (17MB file); backs of panels (9MB file).

The two metre size panels were originally displayed at libraries and other public places throughout the Merri Creek catchment over 16 months until late 2016, in celebration of MCMC's 25th Anniversary.
